Absolutely go for it. If you're handy with a wrench, buy some old stuff and go. Do some honest budgeting, and maybe at least basic crop insurance, and start from the bottom up with old equipment. One of the neighbor boys here bot a 5k Versatile 4WD, a 7k Concord drill, picked up an old deep tiller from another neighbor for nothing and he's farming a bit. I sprayed some for them and his uncle and grandpa combined. You won't get rich but you can fulfill a dream and most years make a little.
There is a line (somewhere??) if you hire it all out, then don't expect much in return. Farming ground takes an investment of some money.
